Layon landfill could be sold

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Layon Landfill could be sold if the Government of Guam chooses to make an offer to Guam Resource Recovery Partners. The provision is included in the new proposed waste-to-energy contract between the Government of Guam and GRRP.  The sale of Layon for the construction and land acquisition cost is only on the condition that GRRP opens the Guatali landfill. 

The 214-page draft contract was released by the Guam Economic Development Authority.  As we reported the legislature was advised of the settlement following court-ordered mediation. GRRP and Chevron Energy want to partner and finance and operate the waste-to-energy facility to extend the life of the Layon Landfill.

GEDA administrator Henry Taitano says neither his agency nor the governor agree with many of the proposed provisions of the agreement, as they are in conflict with current law.  

The new contract, however, is subject to approval by lawmakers.
